I’m from the green suburbs of Nashville, Tennessee. I’ve got no accent to prove it, but I always have an appetite for pulled pork, cornbread, and grits. I grew up in a super musical/performer family. From year one of my life, I had a camera on me daily, thanks to my scrapbook-savvy momma. I knew how to “cheese” for the camera before I could even talk. Perhaps that’s why I feel so comfy in front of the lens. A true creative and torn ambivert, I spent my teens figuring out my style (on this here blog), selling vintage clothes, learning Photoshop and HTML, as well as performing in musicals and show choir.
In 2013, I took the thirty-hour drive to Provo, Utah to attend Brigham Young University. I had the pleasure of being in a performing group there called the Young Ambassadors, singing and dancing our way to Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia. After my first year though, I realized how much college wasn’t for me. Miss Free Spirit wanted to fly far away from generals and a grid-locked schedule.
So, here I am pursuing my creative dreams. Thanks for being a part of my journey!
ABOUT WISE SOUL
First off, thanks for visiting my little corner of the web! I started this site a long time ago (when I was 14!) to gain a sense of style. Since then, Wise Soul has become a place to share tips on living life confidently and authentically, styling yourself, and becoming the best version of you. I do this because I love sharing advice, life lessons, and pretty imagery.
The name Wise Soul is what I’ve been called from a very young age. I have always just been really mature and it kind of stuck. I think it fits well with the blog because of the “wisdom” I share and the bohemian and earthy lifestyle I live.
My goal and hope is that you leave Wise Soul feeling inspired and ready to live your life more fully.
P.S. If you don’t know where to begin, here is a list of some of the most popular and helpful articles.
